    Is there a LP stream somewhere? I want to experience this launch in its full glory.

    Not foolhardy enough to buy a copy though.

    Hm. I backed this. I can't remember why though. Must've had too much money at some point in my life.
    Well. I guess everybody gets fucked over by crowd-sourcing at some point. Had to happen eventually. :M

    Can't find any launch reviews, but the publisher has released an "accolade trailer" based on the previews :shittydog:

    Allright, I already want to uninstall. The game defaults to French. I immediately go into the language settings and select English. I press OK -> nothing happens, menus are still in French. I restart the game -> everything remains French. FFS.

    They. Did. Not. Fucking. Test. Changing. Languages.

    I assume your OS language is set to Fr? If you're desperate to play this, change it to En, reboot, verify UU's integrity and try again.

    OS is in French but Steam is in English. I play all my games in English, and it works for all other games.

    I spoke too quickly, apparently the main menu is in French but the keys rebinding menu is in English.

    And here, gentlemen, is the first puzzle of the game:

    [​IMG]

    Let's figure out what "Move forward + back +" is supposed to mean.

    Also let's ignore the text formatting/wrapping outside buttons, cause why not.

    Cool, the game warns me about a key conflict, when there is none ( I double checked ). Just lol.

    Game installation: 23,1GB (compressed download is 10,3GB).

    45GB is probably "required" storage space for the sake of margins.
